Flore médicale

Published 1833

This edition apparently not issued with J.L.M. Poiret's Partie élémentaire (also known as Leçons de flore) and P.J.F. Turpin's Iconographie végétale, which are works that accompanied some other editions. As Stafleu and Cowan have noted about this publication in general, "the information in the literature is complex and not always clear."

Issued in 90 livraisons. The number of the livraison appears in the running footer for each part

Set includes plates numbered 1 through 349, in addition to the following "bis"-numbered plates: 33 bis; 54 bis; 83 bis; 112 bis; 120 bis; 123 bis; 129 bis; 148 bis; 231 bis; 307 bis; and 333 bis

The letters "a.l.l." appear in the lower right corner of some of the plates, perhaps indicating "avant le lettre," although the plates also have the engraved captions

Mme. E.P. is identified in t. 2, etc. as Mme. E. Panckoucke

The text pages are unnumbered

The plates are hand-colored, with blank tissue guard-sheets
